When it was least expected from them, Italy have shown a huge competitive spirit and strength against the reigning Olympic Games champions Brazil.

 

In the opener of a Day 2 in the 2017 FIVB Men’s Volleyball World Grand Champions Cup in Japan, the Italian National Team recovered from a demolition which they suffered in the first set to down Brazil in five, 3-2 (15-25, 27-25, 27-25, 18-25, 15-12).

The opposite Luca Vettori paved Italy’s way to victory with 27 points (4 kill blocks), making three points in a row in the tie-break at 9-10 which totally extinguished Brazil’s hopes of victory in Nagoya. In Brazil, Wallace de Souza notched 19 points (4 kill blocks).

Now, both the „Azzurri“ and Brazil have a 1-1 record but the South American side has one point more compared to the rivals (4 pts. – 3 pts.).

Day 2, fixtures:

Brazil vs. Italy 2-3 (25-15, 25-27, 25-27, 25-18, 12-15)

USA vs. Iran, 08:40 CET

Japan vs. France, 12:15 CET

Guidetti excluded from the game vs. Russia after not accepting referee’s controversial call (VIDEO)

Mr. G. Guidetti is a member of FIVB Technical and Coaching Commission, so that he can officially initiate to incorporate into a Video challenge systems also floor touches.. Moreover to deal with an issue of double contacts ..
He can also ask to open the contract with an official FIVB ball producer and require to change it for a normally visible one or to cancel it... He can do it via the Commission, and asks for a support Italian and Turkish NVFs... Reply

De Kruijf – “Guidetti should’ve named true reason for leaving, which has probably been money”

Im not a fan of Guidetti (I think he keeps complaining decisions from the refree). But I dont agree with her. It was his decision. She needs to understand that. Hes free to choose what is best for him Reply

New volleyball organization established and it includes several powerful national leagues

Really looking forward to seeing what they are going to achieve in the future... Reply
